Oconee County Senior Center

Oconee County Senior Center Update -- Tuesday, July 7, 2020
Hello Seniors!​  Please be advised that the Picnic on the Lawn planned for July 15, 2020 has been delayed until it can be determined that the current number of positive cases of COVID-19 are on the decline. In a recent conversation with the Oconee County Administrator and the EMS Director, it was determined that, while it may be an opportunity to fellowship and catch up with friends, gathering during this rise in COVID-19 cases would not be safe for those persons we serve through the Senior Center.
Please continue to stay updated through our webpage, Facebook, email, or a telephone call to the Senior Center if you have questions related to upcoming planned activities and programs. ​
​Merry Howard, Senior Center Director
